NENSA is excited to return to Lanesborough, Massachusetts in collaboration with the Berkshire Nordic Ski Club for the third running of the Mt. Greylock Hill Climb.
Please note due to popular demand — there are multiple options with classic and freestyle options for all on either the 3 mile or 8 mile course. This awesome Hill Climb has become a highlight of the Rollerski season and an exciting way to build into winter!
The upper half of the toll road will be closed to outside traffic during this event. Competitors must park at the bottom of the road or the Jone’s Nose lot. Team vans, and parent support vehicles, should sign up as a “Coach” on the registration page if you wish to drive your vehicle to the summit and/or contact [email protected] to procure a Vehicle Pass. The organizing committee will facilitate van transportation from the summit back down to your cars for those that do not have support vehicles.
Skiers must abide by the “yellow line” — always staying in the direction of travel in the right hand lane. Skiers who cross the center of the road may be removed from the competition. There is no downwards travel on the road — warmup must be conducted at the base of the road on skis or on foot.
The lodge at the bottom of the road will be open — including bathrooms. There will be a Porta Potty at the summit and indoor space in the Thunderbolt Shelter.
Please refer to the EVENT NOTES on the Registration Page for the latest updates.
